Libeert undertakes to do business in an ecological manner in order to minimize our impact on the environment as much as possible and to continually improve our environmental performances. This manifests itself in the first instance from our vast range of organic chocolate products. In addition, we also offer UTZ, fairtrade and chocolate products with their origins mentioned.
Organic chocolate is chocolate made from cocoa beans grown without chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Obviously no fragrances, colouring or flavouring are added to the chocolate.
UTZ Certified stands for sustainable agriculture and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. The UTZ program teaches farmers improved farming methods, allows for better working conditions and better care for their children and the environment. Now and in the future. And it tastes a lot better.
Fairtrade chocolate is chocolate that was produced in a responsible and sustainable manner. By buying Fairtrade chocolate, you help small farmers in developing countries to obtain a higher income. They receive a fair remuneration for sustainable production.
Palm oil is an important part of our daily nutrition. Did you know that in the last 25 the global production has been multiplied by 5 (52 million tons in 2014) ? Because the use of palm oil is linked to deforestation, we want to use only sustainable certified oil for all our products. Therefore, Libeert subscribes to the system of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), with reference number 9-0823-14-100-00.
This international organization developed a standard for sustainable and responsible production and focuses on palm plantations and presses, to which certificates are linked.
Origin chocolate is chocolate with a high cocoa content, made from cocoa beans that come from a specific country, region or plantation. Environmental factors, such as climate, soil, way of drying and the cocoa pod determine the specific taste. Libeert launched three original slabs under its own brand recently: three extraordinary taste experiences, made with carefully selected cocoa beans from Vietnam, Congo and Ecuador.
